People are obnoxiously dumb (n-th part)

Last week we had seen the garden expo. Part of it at least. 

Later my wife wanted to leave a review of the place on their Facebook page. Where she found a review from some woman that had visited the same day. 

Don’t try to find the post, it has since been deleted. (But we have screenshots)

A little context before I paraphrase. Here (as probably all over the northern hemisphere) cottonwood blossoms right about this time of year, releasing their seeds into the wind – hundreds of thousands of little woolly drifters floating with every gust of wind, covering grass, shrubs and playground. My primary school’s yard had these fuckers sitting right behind it, so I am accustomed to this stuff. 

This lady gave a 4 star review, subtracting one star because of these cottonwood floaters. Arguing in the discussion my wife started with her that it is an absolute horror for allergics visiting the garden expo. 

Let that reason sink in for a moment.

Cottonwood floaters are a nightmare for allergics visiting the GARDEN EXPO.

I am an allergic. When I said “Yes, let’s go to the garden expo” I anticipated that I will be suffering.
A lot of the shit on display is BLOOMING. If you are an allergic and you’re surprised that the garden expo, at the end of May, is giving you a hard time without your antihistamines – how are you still alive?

These are the same people who bitch about a sea cruise that when they looked out the window, they only saw the ocean, AND that they got seasick.

Just thought I’d share this little gem of idiocy with you.

Take care,
A.

Lost?

I swear it said “Take a left turn”, not “Cross the ocean.”

Yes, that’s all for today. A lame joke.

We had visited the garden expo in Tulln (Austria) last weekend. I’m sure there’s a lot of stuff to see there, to make blog posts for the next two weeks, if not the entire month. But my son was glued to the playground.
No changing his mind.
None.

Hence, this is all… Well, almost. But that’s a rant for another day.

Take care,
A.

Vacation 1

I would like to grace you with pictures here, but the question is, whether I have an acceptable connection to the net to do that.

So, if you are reading this, I will be sitting on a farm, with little/no Internet.

As a substitute, a balcony picture:

Tomatoes, Raspberries, Blackberries, moar Tomatoes.

After labouring for half the day – including obtaining the seedlings – the balcony is filled with future edibles.
Raspberry, Blackberry, Tomatoes, Bellpeppers, Parsley, Habanero (for me) and mini cucumbers, as well as Salad.

Strawberries are on the west balcony, this is the east side balcony. Later we’ll add Chive…

Nice weekend, everyone.

Dinner!Peaceful Forest Idyl

Indoor and Outdoor use.

For all of the people who have never left the concrete jungle, we bring you these pieces of PVC nature, to admire in the entry hall of inner-city parlour, with view on the helicopter landing pad.

IF you DO have a garden, and you DO see nature, I know of no reason why you’d want this. Deer are a hassle if you have a garden. They trample your flowers, eat your fruit and vegetables. Least you want to do is attrackt more of these creatures by putting up their cadboard comrades here.

If I should ever come upon a home with these in it, or the garden adjaconed to it, I’ll take a dump at the rear end of one of these creatures. If anyone asks, the deer did it…ideal gift for people who admire shit in their livingroom!

Sunrise and Flowers

Rosebud

Reed on our Rooftop (!) sadly the Waterlily refuses to bloom 😦

What ever this is, it looks both beautiful and dangerous. IF any of you know what it is, please comment…

Tomorrow there’ll come a post from my visit to Wienerberg with my best friend, really nice sights to see there. πŸ™‚
Take care

Flowers

Our little rooftop refuge. Yes the roses are missing as of yet, but their next bloom is due in a few days and I will upload it then. If I’m lucky and the Waterlilly is still/again blooming there will be pictures of it too. And of the huge limetree/basswood/linden across the street. (Just so you know where my “Lavender & Roses” post came from…)
